We are Kooth

Pioneering great digital mental healthcare for everyone.

Our teams

Clinical, Safeguarding and Participation team

Our team of clinical psychologists and accredited counsellors are at the forefront of what we do. Flexibility, innovation and a commitment to keeping everyone safe. We have a dedicated participation function that works with a broad range of communities to understand what they want from an online therapeutic service. We design our clinical models and strategy with their full input.

Online and Face to Face Delivery teams

With over 200 counsellors and emotional wellbeing practitioners we look after thousands of service users each day. Our counsellors are BACP accredited or working towards that accreditation. Compassion and that “alongside you” feeling is critical to our unique personal approach.

Product and Technology

Our Product and Technology team is obsessed with creating accessible and effective online platforms that are effective for everyone. Creating compassionate, safe and flexible technology is what we do.

Research and Insights

We live for insights and data and this team constantly strives to develop and analyse the evidence base for our services and online therapy.

Content and Community

Our thriving communities are the result of the support from our trained and highly skilled moderation team and our teams of journalists that work with service users to create engaging materials and communities for all. Their focus is to create that “alongside you” feeling.


We are obsessed with promoting mental health and access to our platforms. From amazing design and social media campaigns to our fabulous team of nearly 50 engagement workers that work with schools, employers, healthcare professionals and a wide range of local stakeholders to improve mental health awareness, resilience and access to our platforms.

Client Success teams

Our clients benefit from amazing insights on the communities and organisations that we serve. Our dedicated team of client success managers work tirelessly with our payors to help embed our platforms across ecosystems and use insights to help improve whole system performance

Sales, Marketing and PR

Our Sales and Marketing teams work in the UK and internationally to spread the word of Kooth and continue our purpose to provide welcoming, effective and personalised online mental health care to all.
